And hell I'm sure some of the players are so paranoid and superstitious they wouldn't want new gear frequently.

Unless you're Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin, Stamkos, etc. If you're an elite franchise guy, you can likely do whatever the hell you want.
I doubt Crosby changes it out much. He's worn the same jock since 14 or something like that, and while his other stuff looks to be much newer, I doubt he's the type who cares enough to insist on brand new underwear for each game.

And yes, I bring that up whenever relevant, because I think it's friggin' hilarious. Making millions a year, and refuses to replace ratty old crap.
